During the onslaught of Typhoon Tisoy earlier this week, comedian and host Ogie Diaz had asked the pastor to “stop” the natural disaster.
Philippine STAR reported that Typhoon Tisoy which brought intense rainfall and violent winds has left at least 12 people dead last Tuesday, as it struck parts of Southern Luzon, with Bicol and Oriental Mindoro as the most-hit regions.
In a video posted by Ito ang Buhay, that was also shared on his Facebook account, the religious leader explained that he wasn’t able to stop the typhoon because of his bashers.
“Kasi yung ini-stop ko yung earthquake, nagalit man sila. Binash ako ng napakarami. So, baka i-stop ko yung bagyo magalit baka magalit na naman. So, pinabayaan na lang natin,” he said.
Instead, he just prayed for it to just go away.
“Nag-pray na lang tayo na ‘yung bagyo lumampas na lang,” he said.
“O edi ngayon normal na. Tulungan na lang natin ‘yung mga nasalanta,” he added.
The religious leader said that he didn’t know what to do.
“Pag pina-stop mo magagalit, pag hindi mo pina-stop nagagalit din,” he laughingly added.
He had asked the public instead to be prepared, pray and ask for protection amid the calamities.
“Yan ang pinapanalangin ko na nag mga kababayan natin na nadadaanan ng mga kalamidad eh proteksiyunan, pagpalain,” he shared.
“Kung may mga kasiraang nangyayari, nandito naman tayo na tutulong sa kanila sa anumang paraan.”
The Kingdom of Jesus church founder also stated that what wouldn’t stop is their desire to help others who are in need in whatever way his group can.
“Ang hindi mai-stop diyan eh yung tulong namin sa inyong mga kababayan. Kasi panata ko yun sa Amang Makalangit…” he said.
